Our new Artist of the Week is the late Scottish conductor Bryden Thomson. Thomson was perhaps best known for his love of British music, but today we will hear him conduct Martinu's charming Symphony No.2. Bohuslav Martinu didn't compose his first symphony until his fifties, but the six he ended up writing were worth waiting for, perhaps best described as a combination of romantic opulence and classical restraint. The second symphony is certainly a mixture of both and Bryden Thomson conducts the Royal Scottish National Orchestra in a fine performance that is gloriously recorded.
